The Historic Brookhaven Homeowners Association plans to celebrate the neighborhood’s centennial with a neighborhood party decorated with photographs of the area’s early days and offering snacks of the period.
“We tried to keep it with an idea of what entertainment would have been like in that time frame,” said Lisa Martinez, vice president of events for the association.
The party will be held at the Capital City Club, the original hub of the neighborhood. The event is scheduled for Nov. 14, from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets cost $100 a couple.
“Anybody who wants to come can come,” Martinez said.
The club is researching what types of hors d’oeuvres might have been served at cocktail parties about 1910, when the neighborhood got its start, Martinez said.
“They’re attempting to come up with a comfort food-type of hors d’oeuvres,” she said. “What is old is new again.”
